Hey gang, happy Friday. A long day has come to a close and I'm getting my buzz on in eager anticipation of the weekend. So, what aside from the Dead and Dead-related artists have you been listening to? Set me hip. Maybe 10 artists/albums?

Jypsi.net

This is a great young band I caught in Nashville while in town to see Lesh & Friends at the Ryman Auditorium this year. With luck, I happened to travel back to Nashville two months later to see the Cal/TN football game; what a great trip to see Jypsi again, too! Excellent musicians! They will bring a smile to your face!

Hey Man, you got some real great suggestions, mine.... Tool. They got some real, heady, jamming stuff. I saw them once and it was some real good stuff, and not too hard. Kinda of Iron Maiden meets Pink Floyd. There is also a brand new band called Wolfmother. More for the younger crowd but definately hip and trendy. To keep the venacular, Wolfmother is like Black Sabbath meets Rush and Pink Floyd.

Been listening to an amazing Pink Floyd Bootleg from 1970 called Libest Spacement Monitor, anyone dig this as well?

Also a raging Zydeco band called the Bluerunners.

1. BECK-The Information (new release, almost an extension of his last great CD-Guero...btw, Info has a song called "Dark Star"...no, not a cover, unfortunatley.)

2. BUD POWELL-Live in Paris 1961...w/Monk, one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time...smooth as silk playing, gorgeous stuff.

3. FRANK ZAPPA- You are what you is...Every time it's an election year and the hypocrisy and idiocy is flying everywhere I counter it w/Frank's stark and funny truth.

4. THE BAD PLUS-Give. Best new jazz trio that sounds like a rock band. Check out their cover of "Iron Man". Unreal.

5. ROLLING STONES-Beggar's Banquet...How can every song on this album be so damn good?

6. DUKE ELLINGTON, CHARLES MINGUS & MAX ROACH- Money Jungle. Ummm...Duke, Mingus, and Max on the same album. What else do you need to know?

7. PRETENDERS-self-titled. Chrissie Hynde exudes sexuality every time she opens her mouth to sing, and even when she doesn't.

8. BOB DYLAN-Modern Times...Not as crazy about it as most reviewers are, but tehre are flashes of brilliance....it'a a lot like Love &Theft.

9. ELVIS COSTELLO-The River in Reverse. Worth it for the title cut alone.

10. MEDESKI, SCOFIELD, MARTIN & WOOD- new CD...just started checking it out...can't go wrong with that line up, really.

Happy Listening!

GC

Earl:
I have got a lot of respect for you so if you are bustin' me for my post then Thank You 'cuz I need to be cut down as often as possible.
Regardless, I've been following the band for about 28 years and never knew about the "Dark Star" from Winterland (1973-11-11)until someone passed it along to me from here earlier this year and it has served me very well. As a result, I must say that like a great Dead concert with the "x" factor there is a "timeless" performance of the Concertos worth checking out at least once: Boston Baroque Orchestra conducted by Martin Pearlman (1996) - it is Pearlman that sits down at the harpsichord for the piece I mentioned in concerto No. 5. (I think it was recorded down the street from the good ol' Worcester Centrum.) Double-box set for $25 on Amazon; check out the reviews. --- AshesRising

Yup, bustin' on the world. I actually listen to tons of classical and classical guitar stuff, but don't even know what it is or who dunnit. I bought a music teachers record collection spanning from the 40's to the 60's several years ago that brought a hugely diverse amount of listening enjoyment into Mr' Earls world.

Got me into Miles and and some traditional flamenco, calypso, Dixieland, early bluegrass/Americana like Jean Ritchie and more. Anyway, digitized some of it, and sold the rest. The time spent here is a sentimental recapturing of my youth and an affirmation that the magic I saw then stands the test of time. In the 80's & 90's I spent more time reading about the band than listening. The availability of shows and research finding those pearls amongst oysters has been hugely rewarding.

To answer the thread question, my latest purchases have been the new Dylan CD and Mark Knopfler & Emmy Lou Harris,,,both excellent but not world shattering.

i still have to check that one out man - sorry haven't gotten back to you on that my friend. gotta burn my copy for Jody's daughter, so will listen then.
everyone talks about Vivaldi's Four Seasons being one of the greatest Baroque pieces ever - but i just gotta think that the Brandenburgs far outweigh any of Vivaldi's works, even his awesom Flute Concertos. Like Radar from M.A.S.H. said...... "Ahhh, Bach" lol

dire: can you imagine what TC would have brought to the music if the lineup was different? Naturally EVERY-body loved Pigpen and I guess he was the face of the Dead back then so there was no way TC could've possibly flourished.
Can you imagine Phil, Jerry, TC and Billy on tour together when the Dead were on a recess? It would have been priceless. == around 1990 he traveled with Hunter and did some solo tunes prior to Hunter doing some poetry readings. Unique but not what it could've been...

Richard Thompson! Now there's a guitar player! Saw him at the Cambridge Folk Festival in the summer and spent quite a bit of the time picking my jaw up off the floor. I don't know how he does what he does - but I know nobody else is doing it.

RT is one of my favorites! He is off-scale brilliant--both as a player and writer. I've seen him many times--solo, acoustic duo, with band. When he straps on the electric--LOOK OUT! Simply amazing. I cannot reccommend him more highly. The new box set is great--mostly previously unreleased live stuff--quite a bit from his own collection. Varying recording quality (some tasty auds).
Another guy that I love is Dave Alvin. Another great player/writer. Pretty rootsy stuff--bluesy, folky, rockin' country. Formed the Blasters with his brother Phil in the late 70's--comtemporaries of Los Lobos. Been doing his own thing for 20 years or more. His new release is called West of the West--covers of Cali songwriters incl. Garcia/Hunter (Loser). Check him out. (Note: I have previously pimped DA on this forum. He's just one of those guys out there on the road playing for a couple hundred folks at a time, selling a few CD's. Go see him--you won't be disappointed!)
